Harrison and Hetherington held their Annual Show and Sale for the William Harvey Lindesfarne Goblet Trophy. The show was ably judged by local supporter of Wooler Mart, Mr. T Comber, who had 15 cattle in front of him battling for the title. Taking the overall championship was Messrs. Cadzow of Inland Pasture with a smashing Lim.x bullock. The reserve champion also came from the same home.
